But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

This 'n' That

imageThe Lord is teaching me patience. He's also teaching me, in interesting ways, how it is that He answers prayer. I'll reserve the details for another time (perhaps), but suffice it to say that, I can unhesitatingly say that if you pray for Him to show you what He's doing, He will. Oh, He may not...

Equipping Eve: Doctrinally Sound Legalism

Written by

imageLegalism is deadly. It deceives unbelievers into thinking they can earn their salvation, but it can also enslave believers, leading them to add works, not as a condition of salvation, but as a condition of God’s continued favor and love. This type of “doctrinally sound legalism” leads to a dange...

This 'n' That

Written by

imageFor lack of better material, I thought I'd share my Friday morning with you. It started early, probably around 4:45 or so, or at least that's my best estimate. That's when my cat began, in vain, to try to wake me. The poor little guy tried for at least an hour before I conceded. When I finally did...

imageIs it Friday already? Wow, time flies when you're stressed out! Or is that just me? So, here's my pet peeve of the week: people who mow their lawn, and then leave all the grass clippings lying on their driveway and sidewalk. Really? How hard is it to take a blower or even a broom and finish the...

Equipping Eve: A Whole New Wardrobe

Written by

imageLadies, we like to be well dressed, don’t we? And while we certainly don’t want to neglect our outward appearance, we know that Scripture emphasizes the greater importance of our spiritual adornment. When Christ saves us, we are given, in essence, a whole new wardrobe. The best part? This is one war...

He Is Not Here

The Original Plan

Written by

Still not understanding all that Jesus had prophesied about His resurrection, His earliest followers no doubt felt a measure of great despair on that Saturday.

Whose Church?
